Amend­ment to help re­vi­talise the cen­tre

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

SUN­SHINE Coast Coun­cil’s vi­sion to de­liver a world class cen­tre for Caloun­dra is tak­ing an­other step for­ward.

Coun­cil is propos­ing a plan­ning scheme amend­ment to help im­ple­ment the adopted Caloun­dra Cen­tre Mas­ter Plan, which sup­ports the com­mu­nity’s goals for the area and the mas­ter plan’s vi­sion to fa­cil­i­tate a strong mix of com­mer­cial, tourist, com­mu­nity, sport, ed­u­ca­tion and liv­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Di­vi­sion 2 coun­cil­lor Tim Dwyer said com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion on the pro­posed plan­ning scheme amend­ment was now un­der way.

“The com­mu­nity has an op­por­tu­nity to make sub­mis­sions and all feed­back will be con­sid­ered by coun­cil,” Cr Dwyer said.

“Fol­low­ing ex­ten­sive com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion in the de­vel­op­ment of the Caloun­dra Cen­tre Mas­ter Plan, this amend­ment is seek­ing to achieve greater ac­ti­va­tion, con­nec­tion and vi­brancy for the cen­tre of Caloun­dra.

“This special at­ten­tion given to the cen­tre of Caloun­dra will boost in­vest­ment con­fi­dence and es­tab­lish Caloun­dra as a lead­ing busi­ness, em­ploy­ment and com­mu­nity ser­vices hub.

“Through this amend­ment, we plan to se­cure ex­em­plary ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign and fa­cil­i­ties that will make a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the vi­sion for the Caloun­dra Cen­tre.”

Sub­mis­sions on the pro­posed plan­ning scheme amend­ment will close on Fri­day, Novem­ber 9.
